West Ham owner Gold suggests Allardyce is still the man

West Ham United co-owner David Gold insists that manager Sam Allardyce is the man to lead the club.

Talks regarding a contract extension have been put off until the Hammers ensure their safety from relegation but with former striker Paolo Di Canio quitting as Swindon Town boss, there has been speculation that a change could soon be made at Upton Park.

However, Gold made it clear on Twitter, after retweeting posts regarding the possible Di Canio appointment that Allardyce is still favoured in East London.

"Always interesting to see the different opinions from people on twitter. My view is clear though - Big Sam is our man! Dg," he posted.
